To help families build assets and achieve economic security requires more from nonprofits and funders than dedicated staff and good work.

It requires advocacy and systems change, which in turn require funding that builds capacity, not only through grant monies but through technical assistance, network building, and coaching.

Foundations and nonprofits usually can’t do this all by themselves. The use of collective impact principles and support from an intermediary is one effective solution.
